When I was in the US last year, Andy Groneman introduced me to some of the top US manufacturers of Rubs and associated BBQ Accessories.

2 standouts were "Big Poppa Smokers" & "Simply Marvelous"

Image

We are starting with the following products:

* Big Poppa - Money Championship Rub

* Big Poppa - Happy Ending Finishing Rub

* Big Poppa - Little Louie's Seasoned Garlic Salt with Black Pepper

* Big Poppa - Jallelujah Seasoned Jalapeno Salt

* Big Poppa - Engineered Drum Smoking Kit

* Simply Marvelous - Spicy Apple Rub

* Simply Marvelous - Pecan Rub

Image
Big Poppa - Money Championship Rub - The long awaited, Big Poppa's "Money" Championship rub. Already winning accolades at competitions all over the US. Its the perfect blend, Gluten Free and MSG Free.

Image
Big Poppa - Happy Ending Finishing Rub - Once you have used "Money", you will need a Happy Ending. This is the finishing dust to accompany your "Money". Enjoy Happy Ending, it's Gluten Free and MSG Free.

Image
Big Poppa - Little Louie's Seasoned Garlic Salt with Black Pepper - Oh Little Louie! Building on the Little Louie’s Seasoned Garlic Salt, Big Poppa developed this product with the classic brisket recipe in mind. Garlic, Salt, Pepper! Little Louie’s really brings alive chicken, pork or beef with it’s straight forward flavours. Big Poppa uses it on absolutely everything. This BBQ seasoning is the real deal and it's Gluten Free and MSG Free.

Image
Big Poppa - Jallelujah Seasoned Jalapeno Salt - Ready to spice up your meats & veggies! Jallelujah is Big Poppa Smokers latest creation. This Jalapeno Season salt has a great kick and it's Gluten Free and MSG Free.

Simply Marvelous produce some of the best Rubs I have tasted out of the US, these 2 flavours are just the start. :D

Image
Simply Marvelous - Spicy Apple Rub - An excellent balance of sweet and sultry spices with just a touch of apple. It is a delectable rub that should be sprinkled liberally on chicken, beef and fish, but is extra special on pork shoulder and ribs.

Image
Simply Marvelous - Pecan Rub - Sweet, nutty and savory blend that will excite your palette. It is excellent on pork, chicken, beef and fish. Watch for this rub on the BBQ circuit!

Big Poppa Smokers - Engineered Drum Smoking Kit

Image

The Big Poppa Smokers Engineered Drum Smoker Kit has been anticipated for a while now, and it's sure to please!

The EDS kit comes with everything you will need to transform a 55-gallon drum into a competition quality smoker.

You will, however, need:
a 55-gallon food-quality drum and lid
electric/cordless drill
one 7/8" wrench (or adjustable wrench)
one 7/16" wrench (or an adjustable one also.)
tape measure
straight edge

Big Poppa Smokers must encourage you to be safe when assembling your drum smoker. We must also stress the importance that you choose a FOOD-GRADE drum for construction. Unlined drums are preferable in the construction of the EDS kit, but lined drums can also be burnt to remove any lining. We recommend that you purchase your drum from a professional drum retailer or refurbisher.

Here are some general guidelines to follow when looking for an appropriate drum:

1. Re-conditioned Drum
Supplier needs to be a state licensed re-conditioner. State employees will visit licensed companies on a regular basis to ensure that the company is following proper cleaning procedures, and that the equipment being used is operating within state regulations (variable in each state).

The Cleaning Process: All barrels are burned out, shot blasted with steel shot to remove residue and washed out with a water based rust inhibitor. The rust inhibitor is crucial, without it the barrels will rust quickly (although inevitably). State licensed re-conditioner's are the only way to ensure that contaminants have been removed effectively and properly.

During our R&D trials we have found it best to request an open top re-conditioned drum with:
- A new plain lid (no bung holes).
- No gasket for the lid. This is not required for our application and is also an added expense.
- No ring and bolt. The ring and bolt is what would normally keep the lid tightened to the drum itself. This is not required for our application and is also an added expense.
- Unpainted or Painted. We suggest applying your own high temperature paint to help with inevitable rusting. We recommend Rust-Oleum BBQ Black heat resistant Spray Paint Enamel. This paint resist up to 1,000 degrees. You can find it at any local hardware store. Other spray on paint enamels are also available.
- It is important that the customer does a high temperature pre-burn prior to the first cook.

2. New Drum - For customers who are concerned with using a re-conditioned drum that has unknown previous contents, we recommend a new drum with the criteria of:
- Open Top 55 gallon steel drum
- Plain lid (no bung holes)
- No ring and bolt
- No gasket
- Can request painted or unpainted. It is still recommended to apply your own coat of Rust-Oleum.
- It is important that the customer does a high temperature pre-burn prior to the first cook.

For reference: The dimension of the cooking grate is 21.5" in diameter, with the charcoal nest measuring in at 13-3/8" diameter by 7.5" high

I was fortunate enough, to taste test the "Simply Marvelous - Spicy Apple Rub" at the recent Top Shelf Show in Melbourne.

Absolutely took me by surprise, it was so so good. A delicious apple flavour and balanced overall taste.
I helped myself to sprinkle it liberally on the pulled pork roll I was hoofing down, and it was Marvellous!

Looking forward to the shipment coming in :)

looking forward to seeing these drums in australia.
my only feedback would be that customers will want to mimic the wsm and add a waterpan.
i would suggest that retailers provide a source or "parts list" of where to find the correct bolts/pans for customers to add these modified parts.

i could suggest this fellow here
